Mississippi’s big-3 universities – football powerhouses not

Ole Miss won three national football championships (1959, 1960, and 1962) under the leadership of coach John Vaught. Neither Mississippi State nor Southern Mississippi has ever come close. In recent years the three programs have failed to produce teams of national note. This past weekend saw all three go down to defeat. What’s the problem? Do you think Mississippi will ever again produce a national football championship? What would you recommend the universities do to get back on the winning track?

  1. I was a student at Ole Miss during those years and Coach Vaught and the Rebel football team were in their glory back then. It was a rare confluence of the best coach in America with outstanding players all at the same time. If the heavenly stars align just right one of these days and with the right coach and players, Ole Miss just might be national champs again. I am saving my Confederate money, but I am not holding my breath for that to happen anytime soon. 😆

  2. Just like most forms of government–too may bureucrats and too may physical facilities (buildings, etc.) to maintain and/or utilize efficiently. What a waste of the tax payers money. Seems to me we (Ms) would be better off to consolodate our universites (alumni like it or not), establish more efficient administrations and physical facilities–save money——-and end up with a much better education system, as well as sports programs.

  3. Wayne, I agree 100% with you!
